“The most interesting experience ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

I have always wanted to see glass blowing and had high expectations. This was even better than I had expected. The show takes about half an hour then I got to try it myself! Wow!!! I am addicted. It was a real life experience. The glass blowers were really cool, well friendly and really informative. I really felt that I learnt something. I have found out you can also book up for a glass blowing course. They run them Saturday mornings. I have already booked it. £85 and you can keep all that you make! So ill do an updated review when I've done it. I cant wait!!

My friend and I visited Bath Aqua Glass Shop and Factory on a weekend visit to Bath. High quality beautiful glassware and jewellery. We watched an informative and impressive demonstration of glass blowing which we would recommend to any visitor.

“this glass blowing experience was amazing!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

i took my little boy in who was mesmerised and i could not believe the wonderful studio with all its artifacts and the glass blowers before our eyes. it is so nice to see a local product from start to finish. we decided to put our breath in bauble, and now have a wonderful piece to remember Bath. advice for travellers, its the 11.15 and the 2.15 where you can blow a bauble, because we turned up and had to go back.

“amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

It was a wonderful experience to see the glass blowing taking place right in front of you. Have seen some on TV but that is not the same as live like this. After the demonstrations we had the chance to blow our own bauble and have a name engraved on it. Something to keep as a reminder and to boast about later! The workshop is an interesting place to see and the shop is full of a huge range of handmade glass showing what can be done.

What an amzing plus to our experience in Bath. I had no idea that you could visit a real glass blowing place. We even took advantage of their 'put your breathin a bauble!' Every one in our familly had a go. And we get to keep what we have blown!
I recomend to any one thats visting Bath.
